The Roland Foresta

Roland Foresta
Opening March 14!

After several months of intense work, Kentucky's first and only Roland Foresta is nearly complete!  Opening on March 14 for clients all over the Kentucky and Southern Indiana area, the Roland Foresta at Gist Piano Center will feature the new line of SuperNATURAL digital pianos by Roland.


Roland Foresta is a specially prepared in-store environment for choosing a digital piano, a quiet and comfortable space in which you can select the instrument that perfectly suits your needs and lifestyle. It's important that you spend a relaxed time exploring different instruments to discover the model that you enjoy the most.


We want our customers to choose the very best piano for their needs, so we have incorporated the Foresta environment into our Louisville store and equipped it with the very latest Roland digital piano lineup. There, you can spend as much time as you need to see, try, and choose the right instrument for your home.


Experience the new Roland Foresta at Gist Piano Center - opening March 14!

Academy Raises Money for New Roland

Christian Academy
Academy Students with their New Roland
Congratulations to Erin Stewart and the students of Louisville's Christian Academy for raising enough money to purchase their new Roland RP-201 Digital Piano!    
Erin and her team raised the money during their annual fundraising event using the "88 Keys to Sound Success" program.  Asking each family to sponsor a single piano key for $25, a chord for $75 or an octave for $200, the Christian Academy folks were able to pay for the entire piano in a single evening!  Nice work, Erin!   ...and thank you to the many Christian Academy families to donated their time and financial support for this project.
If you are a school, church or community organization and you would like more information about fundraising programs like this one, please contact Gist Piano Center.  We'll be happy to help you raise money for your new piano!

On YouTube:  The First Piano

The Cristofori Piano
The World's Oldest Piano
 Who invented the piano?  When did he do it?  Where does the piano come from?  Who gave the piano it's name?  What does "piano" mean?  What does the middle pedal do and where did that idea come from?  What did the first pianos sound like?
If you've ever found yourself wondering about the early days of piano building, then you won't want to miss James's new YouTube video:  The First Piano
Including photos of the piano's inventor, a snapshot of the oldest surviving piano today and a video clip of a pianist performing on a replica of the first piano, this short video is a MUST for students and history lovers.  Don't miss it!
Thanks for reading.  If you enjoyed this issue of Piano Monthly, let us know.  We love hearing your ideas and suggestions.  ...and, remember, if you're ever in the area, you're always welcome at Gist.  Stop by and say hello from time to time.  Until then, may the music move you.
Warmest Regards,
James Harding and Amber Scarberry
